The pictures of the harvest show seem to clearly be a classic, so yes then you need a jacket. If you are doing straight jumpers, ie anything but classics, derbies and prix classes you do not have to wear a jacket. Also, if you are going to go to an A circuit show and wear a jacket please make sure it fits perfectly. There aren't very many jackets that A circuit worthy for $100 unless you are buying used. If you aren't doing the hunters, classics, derbies or prix classics I wouldn't waste $100 on a coat.
I went to an A show this spring and showed in a long sleeved shirt and a quilted vest.
Oh, but I agree with everyone else on the square white saddle pad. I don't consider anything with an animal print "conservative". =)
The point is to have fun though, so be comfortable and enjoy yourself!
